Proofgold Network Down?

It's nothing serious. Multiple nodes went down near the same time for some reason, but I've restarted them.

It does look like there are not enough nodes that are listening for incoming connections. By default nodes don't. But if you want your node to listen for incoming connections you can add


to your proofgold.conf file. If you don't want to expose your ip address, you can create a tor hidden service and put this into your proofgold.conf file:


If you don't know how to create a tor hidden service, there are lots of explanations online. The short explanation is to put this into your /etc/torrc file:

HiddenServiceDir /var/lib/tor/pfg_hidden_service/
HiddenServicePort 21808

and then restart tor. After restarting tor, you'll find your onion address for this hidden service here:
